Secret’s out on garden design win
It all came down to “precision” for the residential winner at this year’s Landscape Queensland Excellence Awards.
Morningside landscapers Outdoor Secrets took home the Queensland Residential Landscape Construction of the Year for work on a Paddington home.
The judges commented on the high level of precision that had been used on the “hugely challenging” site.
“Five metres of level difference has been landscaped to provide the balance between the intimacy of the softscapes and strong lines of the contemporary,” the judges said.
“A range of technical ability to execute the hardscape has been demonstrated with in situ and polished concrete, natural stone tiling and decking.
“The lighting pulls the dramatic rectilinear lines into the next level.
“In sharp contrast to this, the lush and full softscapes make this into a personal space that embraces you and invites you to enjoy the ambience that has been created.”
Gold Coast based Naturelink Landscapes and Design won the Queensland Commercial Landscape Construction of the Year for the Burleigh Boardwalk at Burleigh Heads.
Landscape Queensland CEO Mark Sorby said this year’s awards again showcased the high levels of skills and professionalism of the landscape industry.
”Industry trends are changing to meet consumer demands,” he said. ”This sees landscapers undertaking an exciting and diverse range of projects which were reflected in some of this year’s awards entries submitted from throughout the state.”
More than 500 people attended this year’s event at the Brisbane Hilton.
